THERE was no shortage of exceptional cattle after agents yarded 4600 at last Friday’s (July 2) Victoria Livestock Exchange Leongatha store sale.

The quality of the yarding was again outstanding with lane after lane of heavy feeder steers on offer, with the 480kg to 620kg pens making $2400 to $2880.

And up to a top of $3060 for a couple of pens of heavier types to be another $100 to $150 dearer than the last sale.

Many vendors were keen to take the money rather than carrying these heavier types through the winter to finish them off in late spring.

Weaners continued to sell extremely well with prices in the $5.50 to $6.50 per kg bracket for the steers, and $4.80 to $5.50 for the heifers.

Nutrien Leongatha livestock agent Alkira Riley said it was one of the biggest yarding of grown cattle at Leongatha.

“It was a really good sale, it was predominately beef cattle and some dairy-cross cattle,” Ms Riley said.

“They sold very well.

“But it was predominately feedlotters and abattoirs buying.”
